John Samaniego

Sheriff John Samaniego currently serves the citizens as the 53rd elected Sheriff of Shelby County.

Beginning his law enforcement service more than 40 years ago, after graduating from the University of Alabama, John worked for the Tuscaloosa Police Department where he dedicated more than 20 years to Narcotics Investigations.

In 1991, John served as the Commander of the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force until 2001 when he was promoted to Assistant Chief of Police of the Tuscaloosa Police Department. During his career at the Tuscaloosa Police Department, John earned his law degree from the Birmingham School of Law.

My political views are inseparable from my private life. I was born and raised in Alabama and grew up with the support of two loving parents in a family of six, and was always taught that achievement requires hard work and dedication. These are lessons I take with me in all walks of life.

As your Sheriff, I want to continue to keep our community safe. Community-oriented policies and a supporting partnership with our schools are the keys to success in Shelby County. I assisted my predecessor, Sheriff Curry, in his pursuit of this goal during his previous three terms as Sheriff, and I look forward to continuing to do more as your Sheriff.

He and his wife Shirley and daughter Sophia currently live in North Shelby County.
